Message type or message cluster extraction is an important task in the analysis of system logs in computer networks. Defining these message types automatically facilitates the automatic analysis of system logs. When the message types that exist in a log file are represented explicitly, they can form the basis for carrying out other automatic application log analysis tasks. In this paper, we introduce a novel algorithm for carrying out message type extraction from event log files. IPLoM, which… CONTINUE READING
